Really big swatch revealed

This morning I ordered Debbie Bliss yarns for fall. These should be arriving sometime in August.
Roma is a new super bulky. It's very soft with great colours.

70% wool
30% alpaca
80m on a 100gram ball

9 stitches and 12 rows = 4" on 12mm needles

Poloma Tweed - love it.

60% baby alpaca
40% merino wool

65m on a 50gram skein

12 stitches and 18 rows = 4" on 10mm needles

Paloma Tweed is a lofty chainette yarn. It works up at a bulky gauge, but thanks to the construction, it is light.

My job this afternoon has been adding Elizabeth Bradley needlepoint kits to the website.

OUR TAPESTRY KITSA wealth of carefully selected designs combined with premium quality materials.
Beautifully printed and woven ensuring strength,structure and a precise hole count of 10 holes per inch.
Coded cards with colour and background options.
Quality 4 ply tapestry wool in muted shades.
Two size 20 needles selected for bluntness and durability.
Beautifully packaged with comprehensive instructions, our kits also include a full sized colour coded chart and instructions for Victorian Cross Stitch to tension the canvas.
This is what is in stock today. We can special order any Elizabeth Bradley kit.

The new Noro magazine should be arriving next week.

Crocheted in Taiyo Sock.

See all the patterns...

And remember the super secret Rowan jacket that I'm knitting? I can share the picture now. It's called Roan.
You can see the greens and golds in the bird section. A little different than my swatch.

The yarn is Rowan Tweed and Colourspun.
It's time to get back to my knitting. I need to get Auburn Wave done, like yesterday, so I can start another one and get back to Roan.
